I'm also looking for positive things my body can tell me. I just sucked in my stomach and it went in farther that it has in years! I couldn't even suck it in a few weeks ago.
I'm looking for health in addition to weight loss. I want to be able to come off my blood pressure meds and just feel good again!
Welcome mizliz. I am the same way about comparing. When I first started on 2FC, I spent a lot of time looking at stats of all the posters here and being jealous that I wasn't getting the big weight loss numbers. That's why I put my stats in my signature to show others that sometimes the weight will not come off in huge chunks. I also was in a hurry to reach my weight loss goal and it was about the destination. Now it's about the positive changes I have made and my new love of healthy eating and cooking habits. Hang in there and have fun on this journey!
